GPS Art

Students design their own logo or picture and use a handheld GPS receiver to map it out. They write out a word or graphic on a field or playground, walk the path, and log GPS data. The results display their "art" on their GPS receiver screen. They use geometry and scaling in order to draw a sketch and discover how their movement can be tracked on a GPS receiver.
